Easy-Peasy Delicious Tortilla Soup

Easy-Peasy Delicious Tortilla Soup

January 15, 2024

We know... IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!!! How about warming those houses and belly's with something delicious and giving your kitchen an excuse to use it. Don't worry! This list of ingredients isn't going to break the bank or cause a hefty list of "to do's" while making it. This is our "go-to" for cold weather and filling our homes with happiness. Trust me. You won't be disappointed! Let's get to cooking!


1lb of chicken breasts

1 medium onion (sliced) 

2 gloves of garlic

1 15 ounce can of beef or chicken broth

1 cup of water

1 15 ounce can of corn (undrained)

1 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes and green chiles (undrained) 

If you don't want a little spicy kick, don't add the chilies.

1 11 ounce can of black beans

1 11 ounce can of enchilada sauce

1 packet of taco seasoning

1/2 teaspoon of chili powder

1 teaspoon of cumin

salt and pepper to taste

shredded cheese for topping

sour cream for topping

crunchy tortilla chip strips for topping

Let's do it!

1. Place the cleaned chicken breasts in the bottom of a 5 quart crock pot.

2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

3. Add in the diced tomatoes and minced garlic. 

4. Then pour in the broth, water, corn, diced tomatoes and enchilada sauce. 

5. Sprinkle with taco seasoning and chili powder and stir baby, stir!

6. Place that lid on the crockpot on low and cook for 8-10 hours. 

7. About 15 minutes before you are ready to serve, take the chicken breast out and shred them up using two forks. The chicken will shred very easily! 

8. Then put the shredded chicken back in the crockpot and stir.

9. Let the soup cook for about another 15 minute, then serve!

10. Make sure to top your soup with shredded cheese, a scoop of sour cream and tortilla chips and add cilantro to make it pretty!

From our kitchens to yours... stay warm and bon appétit!

What Our

Homebuyers Are Saying

Rich & Debbie Broken Arrow, OK | Aspen Crossing Patio Homes

"As we all know, time goes by and things change, just like us. In search of the next big chapter of our life and retirement officially at our fingertips ... we found ourselves in Broken Arrow looking for a perfect new community for our later years in life. 

Being close to others, having plenty of room and being able to laugh and have our morning coffee on our front porch are just some of our favorite things. We wanted to have neighbors over to play games and visit and this was the perfect place to do that. We love feeding the local pets as they sauté down the streets and making friends with our neighbors. 

The ease of not having to take care of hardly anything has been wonderful. A new home, a retirement community and peace of mind knowing we had a community of folks just like us sounded like a little slice of heaven. It has been 3 years now and we are settled into our daily routine. Giggling on our front porch, cooking our favorite foods, putting together puzzles and enjoying the simple things in life."
